Museum Cafe Ratings and Reviews

We arrived at our reservation time to find our table had been prepared and was waiting for us. The room was very quite, those dining earlier had left for the play at the Civic Center and the room was ours for a while. The service was excellent and continuous through our stay. The food was prepared as we indicated, the pork tenderloin was a beautiful rich color and easily cut and the salmon firm and flavorful, plus the presentation was done with care and appreciation, seeming to invite us to enjoy our meal. Our out of town guest was very impressed with the whole experience and has commented on the wonderful evening many times since we were there. If you haven't tried the OKC Museum Café, you are missing a great time at a reasonable price.

Always a good choice before attending anything at the Civic Center. This time it was before Jerry Seinfeld - I shared the "special" sea bass with my sister and it was amazing. Other things at our table included the mussels, pork tenderloin, etc. Everything was delicious! Jeffrey, our waiter, was most excellent too! The hostess is very friendly and makes you feel very welcome. I always recommend this restaurant!

Overall our experience was a good one. Our server didn't recite the daily offerings, and a few of our plates were never removed in spite of the many servers and assistant servers passing our table at regular intervals.

Our group had a nice meal on a busy evening at the Museum Cafe. The service was OK, not great. We had high hopes because we enjoy the chef's creations. However, on this evening, our fish was way overcooked (halibut), which was disappointing. In the competitive OKC dining scene, small details are amplified.

Used to be my go to place downtown!
But food lacked it's taste and luster
Had Lobster Bisque, usually my favorite, they must have changed recipe because wasn't tasty
Smoked plate didn't have what was said on the menu, the smoked shrimp were totally off!!!
Didn't even go for dessert :(

We enjoyed a delicious and leisurely Sunday brunch before seeing the Matisse exhibit. The service was outstanding and the menu items varied enough to please diverse palates and dietary needs. We returned after viewing the exhibit for drinks and received the same attentive service as if we had been ordering a full meal.

A friend and I visited the Matisse exhibit at the museum, then went to the top to hear music, then dinner. Entire evening was wonderful fun; full of incredible art, great music, and as always, super delicious food!

I think because of the Matisse Exhibit and it was noon that it was a bit noisy and our waiter was new and not well trained. I'm surprised that your manager felt that he was. I was taking my friend for her birthday for lunch and the Matisse. Matisse was outstanding but lunch was not. I will return when it's not so busy.

We liked the ambiance and the table cloth with the cloth napkins. Service was slow, we waited 30 minutes for our food. The place was very noisy, making it almost impossible to have a conversation with my wife without elevating my voice to an uncomfortable level.
My wife ordered the Chicken, which was tasty and juicy, but my fish was totally over cooked and salty. I informed our Server about this and the Manager came to our table and offered to remove the charge. I declined since I had already eaten all the rice and veggies. However, I was given a Coupon for a free lunch entree at our next visit. I was impressed by this reaction and believe the Management is striving for a high level of service to satisfy their Customers.

Service was very slow, we had to ask a different server to find ours on more than one occasion. One person in the group was paying with a visa gift card and the card was declined. Later we found out it was because the server was trying to run it for a higher amount than their bill. I would go back but only if I could get a different server.

Had Sunday brunch and the food was excellent, both the chopped southwest salad with chicken and the pulled pork hash. The place was busy and service was very slow, the only downside. Our server was good although we didn't see much of her. We realized later that we were never offered those yummy- looking muffins or bread. Shoot!!

This meal was following Matisse Exhibit. Grandmother with daughter and her friend. The waiter tried unsuccessfully to relate to the grandmother - something about taking a nap together. She handled it but it was lame attempt at rapport. Not very speedy from the kitchen but the food was good. Took the edge off of our good time, but we may try it again.

This is obviously a popular pre-Civic Center event dinner spot as there was quite a crowd at 5:45pm. Even so, service was good and relatively prompt. The ambiance is very nice with beautiful art and flowers. We were seated in the walkway between the museum and the main area of the restaurant, which isn't ideal. Next time, I'll request that we be near a window in the main area. We intended to start with the Ahi appetizer, but it didn't show. I had the tomato soup, which was wonderful and my husband ordered the salad with the apricot citrus dressing. It was fantastic. We liked each so much, we traded halfway through eating. At that point, we realized we never got the tuna and they brought it with the entrees. The tuna was excellent and worth the wait. My husband's Bronzino was really, really good and flavorful. I had the smoked trout salad, which was perfect for a hot summer evening. The only thing I would change is that I would order the dressing on the side as it was a bit heavily dressed for my tase. The rose' wine was very good (Von Duker) and we enjoyed the evening very much. We will return.

This is our toto place for Sunday brunch. They have a great variety of choices on the menu, many unusual and different but all tasty. Lots of poached egg dishes, all eggs perfect. Nice ambiance. Reservations are in order as they draw a crowd. Plus you have Museum of Art and theatre and art exhibits in the same building.
